    Angry Problems in Getting into MCGA Mode !!!

    Hey guys.. I tryed to compile an example of one of the Tutorial in the Tutorials part of this site and after several variations of the same program.... i still didn't manage to put it to work.
    The tutorial is the Graphic Programing Tutorial "The MCGA mode and how you get into it in C++ without a BGI " and the code is the Following:

    [CODE]

    void SetMCGA() {
    _AX = 0x0013;
    geninterrupt (0x10);
    }

    [CODE]


    I've tryed to run it on VC++ 6 and on DEV-C++ 4 and still didn't manage to put it to work..... can anyone tells me what's going on....

    Thanks
    I'm a person with a simple taste...
    I only like the best.

    OMG That's in the tutorials on this site? *shoots self in face*

    Don't use that, it's ancient... If you want to do graphics, use Allegro or SDL... if you want to do good graphics, use DirectX or OpenGL. (good comes at the cost of easy here)
    Away.

    This is what your best friend could have told you, had you told him what to look for.

    This seems to be some kind of more or less official site with quite a lot of tutorials.

    Hope that helps. And don't use MCGA mode
